Corporate Responsibility

At Handysize Chartering Pool, we firmly believe that a company's responsibility extends beyond its day-to-day interactions with clients and business operations. We recognize the importance of giving back to our local and global communities and strive to make a positive impact in various ways.

One crucial aspect of our commitment to corporate responsibility is our dedication to public service. We understand that it is our responsibility to assist those in need within our communities, both locally and globally. Through volunteering efforts, charitable contributions, and partnerships with nonprofit organizations, we actively engage in initiatives that address social issues and make a difference in people's lives.

Transparency is a core value at Handysize Chartering Pool, especially when it comes to risk management and hedging processes. We firmly believe that open communication and clear visibility are essential for our clients to make informed decisions.

Unlike shipowners, our daily and fixed freight structures are designed to provide transparency and reassurance. We operate with objectivity and work in your best interest, helping you navigate the complexities of risk management and choose the most suitable strategies for your specific situation.

We recognize that the freight of hedging instruments is not always transparent. As part of our service, we actively negotiate with shipowners to reduce excessive and "hidden" margins that may be charged on hedging instruments. By utilizing market data-driven freight models, the same ones employed by ship operators, we ensure that you achieve a fair freight rate for your hedge.

At Handysize Chartering Pool, our commitment to transparency in risk management and hedging processes sets us apart from our competitors. We strive to provide our clients with exceptional service by negotiating fair rates, offering objective advice, and fostering an environment of trust and clarity.

We understand the importance of transparency in the shipping industry, and we are dedicated to upholding this value throughout our partnership with you. Thank you for considering Handysize Chartering Pool as your trusted partner in the shipping industry. Together, we can navigate the complexities of risk management with confidence and transparency.
